Procession

Ceremony begins.

Invocation

Officiant to the couple and guests

We are gathered here for the purpose of uniting in matrimony (Partner A) and (Partner B). The contract of marriage is most solemn and is not to be entered into lightly, but thoughtfully and seriously with a deep realization of its obligations and responsibilities.

Please remember that love, loyalty and understanding are the foundations of a happy and enduring home. No other human ties are more tender and no other vows more important than those you are about to pledge.

Declaration of Intent 

Officiant to the couple

Please face each other and join hands.


Officiant to Partner A

Do you, (Partner A), take (Partner B) to be your lawful wedded husband/ wife/ spouse? Do you promise to love her/ him/ them, and comfort her/ him/ them, honor her/ him/ them, and keep her/ him/ her in sickness and in health, for richer and for poorer, for better or for worse and be faithful to her/ him/ them as long as you both shall live?

Partner A

I do.

Officiant to Partner B

Do you, (Partner A), take (Partner B) to be your lawful wedded husband/ wife/ spouse? Do you promise to love her/ him/ them, and comfort her/ him/ them, honor her/ him/ them, and keep her/ him/ her in sickness and in health, for richer and for poorer, for better or for worse and be faithful to her/ him/ them as long as you both shall live?
